The rest of the road will also be cleared in the last few days. As a result of measures taken since September 27, 750 unexploded ordnance, 4,500 antipersonnel mines and about 2,000 anti-tank mines were found and seized. The work continues. It is planned to complete the cleaning of the territory and settlements in 3-5 years, to complete these works in full within 10 years. That is, for 10 years, it is planned to solve all the problems associated with mines, to completely clean up high-mountainous territories and pastures from mines.
